I bring this up because tommorow is the anniversary of a great show from Worcester 1987. The show itself is wonderful but I always found myself playing or concentrating on the Playing>Comes A Time>hand Jive. Just out of this world. I wanted to know if you guys have specific shows where you constantly listen to a 20-45 minute stretch that stands out from the show.

2 others for me are both from MSG 1987 GDRFB>watchtower>dew>GL>LaBamba and 1990 Eyes>estimated>foolish>jam

Without a doubt for me it would be 10-12-84 Augusta, ME.

From UncleJohn'sBand (my all time favorite Version)>(what I call) Playin'IntheSpace>Playin' Reprise (another all time fave version)>UJB Reprise>(all-time fave Morning Dew).

Just can't believe how poetic and powerful it is all at once.

I second that Augusta call. No matter how many times I listen to it, it still gives me chills.

I would also add Colgate 11/4/77 second set pre-drums with Playin'>Eyes>Estimated>Other One. Put that one in and it's Happy Time.

...And greetings from Augusta...

As often, effusively & reverentially as I refer to this show, how could I not scream "YES!" in responding to Grendel & SDH... Augusta's second set/second night is one of the few points in my life where I can look back & say THAT was pivotal for me, THAT's when everything worked...

So, yeah, the set gets repeated plays, if for no other reason than it's readily available to me & guaran-goshdarn--teed to set the world right.

Though it's not strictly what's being asked for (snippet/block), I've been giving this "short-form" Dead a lotta play lately:

http://www.archive.org/details/gd78-11-17.acoustic.sbd.dodd.7687.sbeok.shnf

I did a post on this 45-min. gem a couple weeks(?) ago, though I maintain it bears repeating--and repeated listening. Acoustic Dead when they weren't doing acoustics, "Dead" when they weren't being the Dead...here, in fact, Jerry, Bob, Phil & Mickey, billed out as the Bob Weir Band, play a one-time-only set for Hunger Benefit Week @ Loyola College.

Though a more recent (for me) discovery, it's definitely joining 10/12's second set in the ready-grab category for when I just gotta get right...

Peace.

Mudcat!

where in the world did you find this??? I had NO idea they EVER played acoustic in '78.

*Found text files--not technically the Dead but jerry's there for the whole thing and Mickey sits in as well. Fun loose jam session of acoustic gems.

Yeah, that's a sweetie, isn't it? I went sniffing around for some October Winterland (Egypt with Love) stuff and bumped my toe on this Loyola gig. Never even heard it existed--and what a frigging mindblower it is. It's just such a sweet little nug of acoustic "Dead," taped about as intimately as we're ever likely to find. I love the early "...Heaven's Door."

Glad you liked it.

Great call with that Centrum trifecta!!! .."I can tell your future/ Look what's in your hand"...."when the blind man takes your hand"...."do that crazy hand jive" How could they possibly nail it so perfectly?

Amsterdam (1981-10-16 - Club Melk Weg; Weir's birthday): it's a great electric set but, in particular, that "Gloria > jam > Turn on Your Lovelight" still keeps callin' me back 26-years later. GREAT POST -- THANKS A LOT = AshesRising

Good call on the Amsterdam gig. As for Augusta show mentioned above, I just can't listen to select bits. That gig is too good to break up. Always loved that gig and the unique set list.
